's right. you know, the big point of contention yesterday was with house majority leader eric cantor pushing for this short-term deal or a series of short-term deals. the president, according to democratic sources familiar with the talks, made it clear that that is something he does not support and something he would veto. the president has, for the last few days, and certainly weeks as well, been pushing for the biggest deal possible where it it seemed to get some support. of late, it has not. the president believing if you start talking about the short-term deals, you run into the political season where you negotiate the things all over again. if you can't get this done now, how will you get this done in the thick of the political season? tense discussions yesterday. the president agitated and believing that republicans are using the debt talks to make political points. the president making the point, according to those inside the meeting, that this kind of atmosphere just confirms some of the worst fears that americans have about the way washington works. >> well, yeah. the way wa

hard. but this is a grave moment for the country. we need to do something very big, very substantial to bring our long term deficits down over time. we have to do that in a way that's good for the economy so we give more support to the economy still healing from the great recession. and it's going to require both sides to compromise. >> cnn dan lothian is at the white house right now. dan, bipartisan talks fell apart yesterday. what was the breaking point. >> the breaking point really was republicans, in particular house republicans, speaker john boehner saying democrats and the president continued pushing for tax increases as part of any deal. as you know, this white house, the president, has been talking about wealthier americans needing to bear some of the burden here and looking at how you can shave back some of the breaks and loopholes that wealthy americans receive. so boehner walking away from the discussions now looking at perhaps some sort of a smaller deal. but the white house saying that the president still wants to move forward with this ambitious plan of cutting the defi
their arguments outside rather than keeping them inside the room. the president wanted the big deal, john boehner it seemed wanted the big deal, and it's very clear that that is not likely to happen. so at this point the president had his press conference yesterday. he said, you know, i'm the grownup in the room here. we each need to give a little on something. he said, by the way, if we don't agree, guess who will sufficiensufficiener? the american people. >> you mentioned spooking the american people. i saw a poll today and i'm sure the white house saw it as well. in it it showed americans are more worried about raising the debt limit than they are about the government defaulting. could the statement by the president be, i don't know, a calculated effort to warn the country, talking about millions who don't get the checks about the severity of this government default? >> absolutely. i think the president is now starting to say, okay, and we're getting a little into the blame game now. okay, if the government defaults, you're not going to get your social security checks and your veterans benefit
to the men and women watching us on the armed forces network. a big thank you to you as well. >>> we're just hours before tonight's debt reduction talks at the white house. live pictures there this morning. the ambitious hopes for a large-scale deal have been dashed. the apparent sticking point? taxes, here is how house speaker, john boehner, sees it as democrat and republican leader prepare for tonight's showdown. quote, despite good-faith efforts to find common ground, the white house will not pursue debt reductions without tax hikes. i believe the best approach may be to focus on producing smaller cuts, that still meets our call for spending reforms and cuts greater than the amount of the debt limit increase. the white house talking about expectations at those talks. here's what spokesman dan fiver had to say about it. he said we cannot ask the middle class and seniors to bear all the burden of higher costs and budget cuts. we need a balanced approach, he says that asks the very wealthiest and special interests to pay their fair share as well and we believe the american people agree. cnn
? >> what we need to do is the president proposed that we deal with this very big problem in a big way. and that democrats should put all of our sacred cows on the table. we demonstrated that we're willing to put all our sacred cows on the table. the republicans are simply not willing to do anything but sit on their hands and cross their arms like spoiled children, almost. and that's just not responsible. what democrats want to do when it comes to dealing with entitlements is make sure that we don't end medicare as we know it. that we don't cut benefits but we look at medicare and social security in a way that can preserve the long-term solvency of those programs and not propose what the republicans have to end those programs. >> speak of safety nets, the president did say in his interview last night that he could not guarantee that he would continue paying social security benefits if there were a default. this is what michele bachmann had to say about that. >> we were all shocked and appalled that president obama dangeled out in front of the cameras that senior citizens may not get th

this theater for however long it's been now really pumps it up. i never thought there was going to be a big deficit or debt reduction deal between the two parties because it's not in the interest of either party. i think the republicans were tactically terrible because they allowed obama to sort of portray himself or present himself as the one who is above the fray and who is interested in making the most cuts to the budget and to the debt going forward. and then making it appear, not appear but it's true, the republicans are walking away from a real deal to cut spending in this country. also, it gave obama and the democrats a chance to spotlight the republicans position on taxes. there's no way to get a handle on budget deficits over the long term debt without raising somebody's taxes. >> if this is raising the white flag, if this is going against the base, what is the difference between this and cutting a deal on tax loopholes and other things that would not impact their message overall. what makes this better? >> this is horrible. >> it's stupid. >> it's a nightmare. it's cynical. the se

having that takeover. it would not have been legally binding, but a big slap in the face. before that debate in the building behind me was about to get under way, the news core itself announced that they were holding their hands up and saying, look, we're not going to go ahead with this. an amazing u-turn from murdoch in the face of unprecedented. they said it's a victory for people up and down the land. they are all relieved for the minute that they don't have to make that decision in government, because that was going to be a very awkward moment when they had to decide one way or the other whether that could be approved. that has been taken off the table. the story is not over, though. the police investigation continues. there may be more arrests and maybe more fallout and maybe more allegations, and it's a global story now. there's talk about, you know, looking at whether they hacked into victim's of 9/11 in the u.s., and threats from a u.s. senator, jay rockefeller as well, and there is not confined to the uk now. >> the whole reason this broke is because of the voice mail th

. today it is the u.s. embassy and we understand there was a big flag raising there, a very important day for the united states as it continues to work on sudan. now welcoming this new nation. >> i wonder how important it was, maybe even the symbolism behind having susan rice representing the obama administration, colin powell, secretary of state during the bush administration, that both of them would be there when you talk to a number of sudanese who say it all really got started with the bush administration and the obama administration got to see the punctuation of that effort. >> that's right. president bush and the christian right really in the united states really pushed this issue for a comprehensive peace agreement between the north and south and then the obama administration, you heard president obama at the united nations in september really calling to push this along for north and south to have this referendum and to move towards what they would want for their people. and in the case with south sudan. and the last several months, the united states has been very active in terms o
's the big question, right? >> looking at the influence of the freshmen today, in general they believe and have very involved local voters to back them up that they were elected in 2010 with a mission to, reign in big government, specifically big government spending, and this debt ceiling debate fits right into that. here's more from one freshman tea partier. >> it would allow the debt ceiling to go up, but only if we had significant cuts, statutory caps and balanced budget amendment and there's a growing movement with that. we met with leadership, we met with majority leader eric cantor and were trying to impress upon them that we need to be for something as republicans, we need to define what we're for. >> senator paul says this is a fight, quote, too important to give up. jon. jon: what kind of influence do the new members have, though? >> well, republicans are in the minority and the senate, so less there, but in the house they're in the majority and tea partiers, or those who agree with the tea party on fiscal issues, among the 87 how freshmen have not been shy about staking their

speaker john boehner today. not going for a big huge deal now. this is part of what chuck schumer had to say -- >> shannon: your response? >> i suspect that is more of the grand politics that you hear playing out there. because it was never put on the table. the kind of reform that john boehner has been asking for, the kind of reform i'm talking about. what was put on the table was again, tax hikes on the wealthy. so that we can do less spending reduction. we've got to get out of that paradigm. we've got to get out of the politics. some of the politics poll really well. one of the problem we're having now is pollsters are at full employment. and politicians are following what they are telling them. it's telling them on the one hand don't put social security or medicare on the table. don't talk about those things. on the other hand, just talk about taxing the rich. you will be fine. but that doesn't help us get to a solution. >> shannon: we certainly hope that you find one. we know you are busy not only with the gang of six or five or whatever it currently stands to be but with everyth
! why is he introducing it? >> i think the president is acting in good faith. i think he wants a big deal. i think he will take cuts that contracts won't want and take taxes. because his presidency and the future of the country -- he believes -- [everyone talking at once] >> socialistic. that what you're saying. >> vaguely socialistic, yes. >> when they came out with the report he said -- >> what is that report? >> that's a report that deals with the long-term deficit problems of this country. >> they recommend taxation, do they not. >> they had a whole series of recommendations, and the president said i will stand by what they did, except they're still waiting for him to stand by them. >> he's never taken it seriously, in not in his budget, not in his budget state, know when bowl simpson came city. not when they wanted a clean debt limit increase. so that he is winning a debate over the fiscal future of the country is astonishing! and. >> but he's keeping something else off page one! what is it? >> this is a genuine. >> the unemployment problem? it doesn't even figure in this. >> co
